When in the great wheel of evolution of this Universe another turnaround has to be given, when some new form, new type of life is coming forth, then the Supreme reveals Himself, embodying the type which He seeks to initiate in His Cosmos. Time and Time again, He has incarnated to give that much required push for human beings to go to the next step in their evolution. ?In her latest book, Incarnations: Steps for Momentum in Human Evolutio, Saraswati Raman has nicely interwoven Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi's clarifications on the occasion of several pujas on the meaning of various Avataras, together with the incidents in the lives of the great Avataras. She has brought home, in a lucid manner, how the human evolution has been actualized in the form of incarnations taken by the supreme being. I wish her all the best for this beautiful book.' ?Mrs. Chandrika Nair, MA, Dip. Ed., M.Ed., retired principal
C. Norman Kraus challenges some of the unwarranted claims of orthodoxy from a consistent and rigorous biblical position. One of his most significant contributions is the development of the idea that shame and alienation, rather than guilt, control our interpretation of God's vicarious action on our behalf. Kraus provides a more comprehensive biblical vision of salvation than is typical of traditional Western theologies and delineates a discipleship which is authentic without being legalistic. A companion volume to God Our Savior.
